My Course Goals
Understand the role of a
variety of technologies/media
in accessing, retrieving,
Understand, without having
to watch youtube videos
how different online media
Use appropriate technologies
to organize, present, and
communicate information to
address a range of audiences,
purposes, and genres
Learn how to use
so I can use them for
projects in my other
Writing instructions can be a simple yet
complicated task. A lot of it has to do with
point of view. What to one person is easy to
comprehend could be difficult to another.
Can be used in many places &
with a variety of things. Such
as fire drill, how-to-cook, &
Show clearly who does what & when.
Write for your Audience.
Numbering, bullet points, and specific words
can make reading the instructions a lot
Try it out yourself & then have a friend do it. If
they can follow the instructions easily, more
than likely anyone will be able to too.
alignment scheme has a strong influence on
the overall impression of the page's message
People are more comfortable with balanced
designs and are more likely to stick around to
read the page.(Ch4)
overall effect of applying repetition is that your
pages will be more visually interesting,
organized, unified, & consistent (ch6).
Flow is greatly enhanced by the simultaneous
usage of the principle of repetition. (ch7)
Integrate previously held beliefs,
assumptions, and knowledge with
new information and the ideas of
others to accomplish a specific
purpose within a context
Know the purpose of the page, who the audience is, and
the format is important. The page will be more clear and
easier for the readers to follow. VISUAL ELEMENTS is a
helpful component that can save time and helps when
knowing exactly where to put designs. (Ch1).
Use information, writing, and reading for
inquiry, learning, thinking, and
Do not just jump into conclusion, having
knowledge about the material is important
because sometimes making it short, simple,
and concise will end up making a project more
The principle of contrast is one of easiest,
quickest ways to give your reader a visual
treat and draw attention to the page (Ch3).
The principle of contrast is used hand in hand
with the principle emphasis (Ch3)
it requires the designer to deliberately seek out
& apply visual elements consistently to a page
(ch 6), Repeating visual elements such as lines,
shapes, images, textures, and so on
forms a visual rhythm that strengthens the
overall organization of a design & makes it
seem more unified & cohesive (ch 6).
Be aware that it usually takes
multiple drafts to create and
complete a successful text
I tend to be a perfectionist,
so my goal is to try my
hardest but not expect
everything to be perfect.
technologies to manage
data and information
collected or generated
for future use
I would like to expand my horizon and
go outside of my comfort zone.
Hopefully learning about all these new
websites I can use them later on to
publish things about my major for
I learned in Ch2 that EMPHASIS states the
most important element on the page& should
be the most prominent., What you choose to emphasize on your page
depends on 2 major points: Content of the
message & what part of the message is
used to direct readers attention to key points.(Ch2), Focal point, Accents, Content
The size contrast between the images naturally
leads the viewer's eyes from the turtle down to
the smaller hare and therefore into the text
Page designs function better and are more
readable if visual elements are intellectually
grouped and their visual weights are balanced.
Alignment occurs when visual elements line up
with other visual elements on the page (ch5).
Designers often use visual principles such as
figure/ground, proximity, closure, continuation,
& similarity (ch 6).
I learned in chapter 7 that flow refers to visual
and verbal paths of movement which reader's
eye track through pages (Ch 7).
Knowledge of Conventions
Develop knowledge of genre
conventions ranging from
structure and paragraphing to
tone and mechanics
Writing down benefits will help
organize thoughts & further
define project goals (Ch1).
Understand and apply legal
and ethical uses of information
and technology including
copyright and intellectual
A common organizational tool in
copywriting is an outline. It helps
organize information & help place
scattered thoughts into a coherent
Contrast occurs when 2 or more elements look
dramatically different from one another (Ch3).
Do not do things by half-measures. With
contrast, it is often all or nothing (Ch3).
A balance of design is one in which the visual
weights of all of the elements are equally
dispersed throughout the layout (Ch4).
The pages will seem more organized when
you visually connect elements on the page
There are a few different ways to align an ad.
Basic text alignments include: Flush left, flush
right, centered, & justified. Advance alignment
are: runaround, asymmetric, & concrete (ch5).
There are 2 halves to the principle of flow:
verbal & visual.(Ch 7)
Verbal flow is the order in which the viewer
reads the text on the pages.
Visual flow is the order in which the viewer
looks at the images and graphics on the page
My Main Goal
My goal for this class is to learn how to use
different websites to publish information about
nutrition. A lot of people spend more hours
online than any other activity.
Placing nutritional information
New healthier versions of recipes
Other nutrition relates articles, blogs, or videos.
Intellectual property right that gives the original
creator an exclusive right to control/reproduce
Limitation & exception to the exclusive right
granted by copyright law to the author of
the work., Examples: commentary, criticism, news
reporting, teaching and research.
A non-profit organization that enables sharing
and use of creativity and knowledge through
free & legal tools.
